Just in case you hadn't heard about it elsewhere in blogland, it's time for the spring version of the Bloggers Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy Ellis.
This is a wonderful, inspirational linkup to all kinds of gorgeous quilts. Make sure you check it out!
I'm going to be linking up two quilts this year, so stay tuned for a second post to follow this one.
If you've just arrived from the link up page, welcome! Hope to see you again!
|And Then There Were Four
This little quilt was made earlier this year to commemorate the birth of my grandson - their little family has grown to 4, which is so exciting! It was made using the Riley Blake fabrics received in a Modern Quilt Guild challenge through the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.
I've entered it in the "Home Machine Quilted" category. I felt it was time I tried a plus quilt, although I kept the pieced pluses to a minimum, and gave my self lots of quilting room! I had a lot of fun playing with different quilting designs to create additional pluses.
My work is all done freehand on this quilt, although I had marked out the Plus grid in which to work. For some of the more geometric designs, I also marked them first so I didn't stray too far off course. I generally use a blue washout marker.
